I can confirm this.
Had my first positive oriole sighting at Olbrich Gardens on Saturday morning. Then, Saturday afternoon, went for a hike along the south bank of the Wisconsin across from Ferry Bluff. I wasn't 50 yards down the path when the first oriole flew by; the rest of the hike I was subject to a constant seranade of spectacular bird song.
Orioles are cool.
