Mysterious oil

I have a vintage toro 521 that I have running great.
When doing some cleanup around the edges today I noticed oil in the ground below where I was blowing snow.
My engine oil level seemed fine.
Can't seem to see where the leak is coming from.

Does the augur share with the drive transmission oil?
Where else can the leak be coming from?
Oh and there was oil on the deck just behind the engine

Place a piece of cardboard under it and let it sit a bit.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
