Question Regarding Repairing A Gap Between Bricks
 
4 Attachment(s)

New home owner here. I'm looking to repair a gap in the mortar between bricks. I bought some mortar mix at Home Depot. It seemed like an easy thing to repair, but it looks like there's a piece of wood in between the bricks. Pictures are attached. Is the wood part of the house? Did the previous owner put it there? Should I try and pry/yank it out before I apply the mortar? Or should I just cover it up with the mortar?
