If I did have that problem, I'd start by using a LC Orange 5.5" pad on the PC with some SSR2.5 (since that's the stuff I currently have). I'd try a few passes and see if it cleared it up. If not, I'd have to debate on whether to wetsand and hope that the above combo could remove my wetsanding marks.
It's really hard to tell from the pictures since some are blurry and others the "etching" is too washed out to tell. It looks like it could have eaten through the clear, but again I can't really tell from the pics.
Edit: I see that you are new, so welcome to Autopia. Also LC = Lake Country, PC = Porter Cable 7336/7424, and SSR2.5 is made by Poorboys. While that's not the only combo that might work, it's the combo that I have and would try. You'd have to follow up with a lighter polish/pad to remove the marks left by the orange/ssr2.5 most likely.
You could also try some Meguiars Scratch X, a terry cloth, about 2 tons of elbow grease, and multiple applications to remove it too. I'm not sure how effective it would be, but it might help some if you don't have a machine to buff with.

It's hard to see the pics, but try what CleanGSR said. It should remove by hand, but if not.. you'll need to get a hold of a Porter Cable and a white foam pad, or possibly an orange pad with a ligh polish.
To avoid bird droppings... avoid parking under tress, or even light poles. Also pack a MF towel, and a quick detailer so you can spray and wipe once you discover this on your finish. Also NEVER use a paper towel on your finish. If you need to use a paper towel.... I would blot dry it. Not wipe up or down, or side to side because it can scratch you finish.
