Question Stains on concrete

We bought this house about 2 years ago. I just notices these stains recently. This wall is the kitchen wall. The sink and dishwasher is in the area, but no indication of water damage in the basement or along the plate. Any ideas? See the two attached pictures. Thanks

Maybe animal feces. A picture from farther away that shows more of that side of the house would give us a better idea of other possible factors.

I'm specifically wanting to see a window, gutter or roofline.

I'm thinking there is tar paper behind the siding which is getting wet somehow, causing the stains.

I find it odd that the stains are on 4" centers and only under the open part of the soffit material that was used as siding. That there are no stains where the soffit touches the wall every 4" makes me think something has been up there. Snakes, bats, who knows.
