As wide an aperture as you can get, get as close to the fence as
possible. The cleanest result is with the fence in shadow and the
subject in sunlight - the other way around doesn't work at all. You
still tend to get funky crosshatching in the out of focus areas.

Well said. And that's how a nature-shooting expert like me (I believe this is my third [count 'em] nature shot of all time), can get bird shots like this.
