Doesn't Tarzan have Kookaburras (Australian native kingfisher, for 
those that don't know it) calling at one point?  I seem to recall a 
discussion about the absurdity of that, somewhen or other.

I've often picked up things in backgrounds of TV shows and movies 
that just aren't possible as "naturally" there, in jungle settings 
etc.  I'm sure my wife rolls her eyes at my plant and bird related 
comments of that nature. <grin>
