Visitors on the mountainside

I placed my remote trail camera near the remains of a dead elk in an isolated area on our ranch rear Elkton in western Oregon. Some interesting animals came to feed. This hungry coyote was happy for the free meal.

A beautiful bobcat stopped over for a snack.
Lots of birds were attached to the remains including this majestic hawk... 
and these quarrelsome ravens. I ended up with hundreds of raven photos.
