Default What is this orange bird crap?

Has anyone seen some sort of orange bird crap looking marks on their cars?
I tried washing it off but it looks like it just completely oxidized my clear coat..

It's neon orange mixed with white looking stuff...
I even got cleaner wax and tried to polish it out but no dice
There doesn't seem to be any information on this anywhere, has anyone had luck with removing these marks?

You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words?

it literally looks like bird poop mixed with orange paint
and when i rinsed it off, it left clear coat etchings...

i rinsed it very carefully, soaked with water for 5 mins and it slipped right off but left a nasty stain.. i'm sure that it wasn't on my car longer for 2 days

Birds eat berries. Berries are colors. Birds poop. Birds poop berry colored poop.

....the first signs of damage can occur within an hour in some cases. You need to address these types of contaminants asap.

As mentioned earlier, pictures would really help. As for solutions, some correction will likely be needed (ie compound/polish) but how effective they will be will partly depend on the extent of the damage. Let us see the problem so we can better recommend a course of action for you.

I had good luck with HD UNO, I had some hard water spots and a couple of deep scratches and was able to hand polish it out without much trouble.
