Especially interesting is the discussion about how some species of birds "dream" to create new songs. Raises interesting questions about how we define a "dream." See our reference: Siegel, Jerome M. 1998. “The Evolution of REM Sleep.” In Handbook of Behavioral State Control, edited by Ralph Lydic and Helen A. Baghdoyan, 7.7–7.8. Boca Raton: CRC Press.
