A Peaceful Dove a little out of range

One of our television channels here in South Australia is currently showing reruns of Star Trek Voyager series 2. I have been enjoying  seeing this series over again, some of which I had previously missed. The episode I watched this evening (Innocence) featured Tuvok who had crashed-landed a shuttle on a well vegetated moon.

Part way through the episode I turned up the volume. Sure enough, there was the unmistakable call of a Peaceful Dove on the soundtrack. LOL.

The Peaceful Dove is a widespread species in Australia. I had no idea that it colonised a moon in another galaxy.

    There are many old adventure movies set in jungles and other wild places. In the background audio track you will often hear the call of a kookaburra. Nothing says wild, foreign, untamed more than a kooka!

    Personally I like to have them around. Their call is sometimes a warning signal about snakes in the area. I don’t know if movie makers actually knew that.
