Antifreeze is dripping out

I changed out the thermostat a few weeks ago and everything seemed fine. Then last week there was a puddle of antifreeze on the driveway. It looks like its coming from the front of the engine and dripping off the oil pan, but its nearly impossible to see where without pulling off some parts. I've ruled out the water pump bearing, but nothing else. Is there a common leakage spot to check on first?

Thanks. I'll have another look, once the snow melts off the hood.

While you are working on this leak, be sure to wash away the antifreeze because lapping it up is fatal to pets.
