I have parked cars in the same spot, with same trees/chipmunks/squirrels around for years and never seen anything like this? Is there something super-tasty about the DS Engine? The hood heat shield?

It's not that cold - and I haven't found any droppings/traces of rodents, but I can't imagine what else this could be. I noticed a smell after going 70mph+ today and even after cleaning this out and sealing the hood heat shield, it's still smelly.

As an update - I got the replacement part from LR dlr ($316 + $70 for clips which I returned) - it was quite trivial to install - just squeeze the clips together to get them out and they pop right back in. Only unfortunate thing is the cost, and the fact that it came somewhat crumpled, compared to the one I took from the factory, but I don't think it'll affect the function...

I shoved some mothballs pellets up there, hopefully there will be no more rodents nesting or getting cooked in there.

Geez, that was expensive for a plastic cover.

Try putting in some rodent kill bait - looks like a rat.
