So I go jack up the back of my car so that I can swap mufflers....I lifted the back end pretty high so that I can have good amount of room to take the mufflers out. All of a sudden I see oil dripping down from this area, a total of a few table spoons:

This bolt is directly below this silver cap thingy:

Here's a close up:

What is that?

So I lowered the car back down....no more oil drips. Started the car...no drips.

Needless to say I didn't proceed with the muffler swap. Too frustrated...

Hoping this leak isn't something major. FWIW my car does not leak anything normally.

Anyone have an idea?

Most likely oil leaked from above onto the shelf of the bracket. When you lifted the car, the angle increased enough for the oil to drip off the shelf.
