Default Coolant leak in 2000 5FSE, by timing cover

I think it's the water pump, can anyone else here give any better idea? Need to start this job tomorrow. I saw someone else suggest the radiator cap and perhaps it was coming out of the coolant reservoir, but I don't see how this is possible given the layout of the reservoir. Thanks in advance for any help.

Here's a video I took:

It's not the cap or overflow tank as coolant would be all over the engine.

Does not look like the water pump inlet hose area but feel around the area for coolant. Loose hose clamp, hole in coolant intake housing due to corrosion, etc.

If the coolant is coming out from under the timing cover then water pump.
