Turkey Vultures and Common Raven on Raccoon Carcass

Two Turkey Vultures and a Common Raven together on a fence. While driving on the Carden Alvar, Ron Pittaway and I saw them in a ditch beside the road. When we stopped they flew onto the fence. A light morph Rough-legged Hawk was also with them but flew off. What attracted them to the ditch?  Carden Alvar, Ontario, on 31 March 2018.
