Default Oil leaking

I have a 2008 PT Cruiser and I have an oil leak from behind the alternator. What could it be? Possibly a cam seal maybe?

Could also be valve cover seals. Is oil leak on the passenger side of the PT?

The oil filter and filter housing are in that area as well. Try laying a peace of cardboard under the Pt to get a good idea where it drips from.
