Seems Uncertain

I think I read somewhere on these boards awhile back about the interesting usage of the dove in the Noah's Ark story. My question is Christians say the Holy Spirit guides us and is symbolically used as a dove. Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't this prefigure the Holy Spirit when Noah uses it? (Dove with the olive branch showing that Noah can leave the Ark and guide him back to Earth)?
