What you probably found was bird poo, not bird pee, (birds don't pee).

But as to how to remove it, a simple quick detailer would fix that up. Although if it's been there for a while, it probably ate through a little bit of the clearcoat--which is something that can only be fixed by an abrasive polish.

I'd suggest using Meguiar's ScratchX to remove the dimple. Good luck.

It probably came from a tree....not a bird...pine trees give off that sticky clear "pee" that you described.

In that case, try wd-40 'ing the area and cleaning it off thoroughly. Should work for the tree sap.
