Need HELP!

I was at work today and for some reason birds and other things decided to crap all over my car so I took it home and washed it when I got off work but now where the poop and debris was sitting there's a shadow on my paint and it won't disappear I tried washing it with dishwashing liquid, dried it again and rubbed it half near death....also waxed it still nothing....

It cleans fine debris that's trapped in the clear coat. After claybarring a good waxing is a must.

I just finished claying my car and I assure you, not only will you not regret spending the 20 bucks but your gonna be like wow why havnt I ever done this! It works really well on the tiny pieces of rubber and tar near the wheel wells that fling and stick. You'll notice and feel it picking up stuff you couldn't even see

It wasn't the clay that took the scratches out... Did you use a compound? Or just a top shelf polish/wax?

You should start with a really good wash, some people say dawn dish detergent works but you could really use any good quality car wash, meguiars, mothers are top notch. If you already have wax on your car this first step will remove it and enable you to remove debris stuck in and on your clearcoat. After a good cleaning you should clay, while claying you really need to take your time and not press hard... Really baked on grime will take alot of passes with a clay bar to remove but just keep sliding it along the paint surface with plenty of lube. After you clay, wash a second time. Now you determine whether your really want to get those scratches out and use a slightly abrasive compound to buff the clear and essentially remove the scratch or just attempt to hide it with a non abrasive polish "you won't see it but it's still there!" waxing is always the last step
