Question about touch up painting

My girlfriend has a Chevy Malibu and birdy doody ate a half-dollar size area on the hood. Its in a pretty noticible area and isn't really even (obviously). I am pretty sure we could find touch up paint to match...but what do you guys think? Is this something that needs to be blended or would sanding, primer and a little touch up paint be enough? I think the bird might have had some Mexican food or something.

Thanks in advance (she says thanks too).

Try wet sanding (1500 grit), but wont necesarilly go away, depends on how deep is the damage.

Garage
Not knowing what spray equipment you have, to blend a hood is not going to be easy with a "shake-n-shoot".If it's metallic it's going to be harder. Keep your spray perpendicular with the surface. If you spray it at an angle the metallic chips will sit up and change the reflected color. If the car is something you care about, have someone who knows what they are doing perform the paint job. Otherwise...rattle...rattle...ptsssssssss! Good Luck!

Old and in the way.
