They just don't care lol.

I recently cleaned my car after being crapped on. Due to my stupidity because of work, they'd been on the car for a few days. I noticed after cleaning off the poos, there are now paint blimishes (tiny bubblage) and I can't do anything about it but have parts of the car repainted. Spots are located on the trunk nearest the window, roof and rear side.

Because the car's a year old with rental scratches and other scars I'm not gonna stress too much over it. My advice is to carry bottled water and towels at all times. Bug and tar removal would work better. :)

I was at the beach over the summer and a seagull took a nice big crap on my spoiler. by the time i got home to wash it off, it had already ate through the clear coat. What the hell are these birds eating? lol

Well known that bird poo is almost as bad as battery acid. I just find the nearest gas station and use their window cleaning stuff to clean the bird poo. Then first car wash I find.

Yes. Birds are attracted to the shiniest thing they can find, it's like a nice big bullseye for them lol

Red Skelton did a comedy skit about two Sea Gulls flying over a car. One said " Do you see that shiney new car down there"? The other replyed " Yea, I just spotted it"
But it ain't funny if it's your shiney new car. One thing I use that seems to help a lot is Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer before hand. It's quick and easy to use and I think it makes my cars easier to wash off. You might want to try it guys. Only takes about 20 minutes to apply, but your car needs to be clean and in the shade first. I also keep a roll of paper towels in the trunk. They have come in handy many times.
Regards, Tom

NEVER... EVER use paper towels on paint! Paper towels may be conveniant and disposable, but is probably worse than the bird crap!
Paper products are made of... wood products/fibers. See???
I know it's a pain. Soak the hard poo in plain clean water or soak a small cloth towel in water and let it sit on the poo until the poo "re-hydrates" and become soft. It just wipes off. No scrubbing or rubbing the hardened poo into the paint. It would be fine to soak a folded block of paper towel to let it "soak", but use the cloth to wipe.
