Your oil separator is clogged up. It's supposed to use intake vacuum to create a vortex in the can through which crankcase fumes are vented. The heavy oil gets slung out to the sides and drains down the small tube back to the sump near the dipstick. Check that tube first to make sure it's not kinked or clogged. If it is the oil backs up in the separator and then gets sucked into the intake either through the big tube that goes to the airbox or the fifth idle intake hose off of the idle air manifold.

Looks to me like the cam cover or the breather tube on the cam cover had a leak.
The oil ran down and collected on the shelf above the ports.
