I kept looking for the source of the leak and finally determined it was the engine oil seal. I had it replaced at the dealer, about $220 and an hours time.
The oil was running off the engine and landing on the frame just behind where the filter is located - it initially looked as though it may have been coming out of the filter or residual oil from the last oil change. But that was not the case.
Just FYI if anyone is finding oil on the ground in that area - check the oil seal!!
