Outline of bird poop!?

My roof got pooped on last week, I didn't have anything to wipe it off during the day. So when I got home I used a microfiber and instant detail to get the poop off. It was already night so I didn't notice the outline. A few days later I washed the car and noticed the outline of the poop (circled in red). I tried using my buffer with a fine cutting pad with poorboy's ssr 2.5. Yet it is still there. Any ideas on how to get rid of this?

sorry for the crappy phone pics

Step up the abrasive- use a more abrasive pad first, if not a more abrasive polish

I'll try that next, since I have medium cut pad as well.

(this is for next time)

I saw this on youtube on one of the detailer guys page. (I think AMMONYCdotcom) He was using a 3M Non Scratch All Purpose Cleaning and Scrubbing Pad that you use for household cooking pans. I started using it along with bottled water that I carry in my car.

I spray over the poop - either water or Turtle wax bug remover. Depending on how long it's been on there.
Clean off the poop or bugs - scrub with 3M non-stick pad.

I try to catch it when it's fresh. My neighbor's tree hangs over my driveway.. I get a fair amount of poop. The 3m Pad really helps. Put a few in your car
