Boca, my 10-year-old pet starling DID rehearse in his sleep. I raised  
him from a naked hatchling and always talked to him while I fed him.  
When he was about six weeks old,  I heard him mumbling while he was  
napping with his head tucked into his back feathers: "boca boca boca  
he's a boca, he's a boca boy..."

I'm thinking of adopting Jacque's strategy using my old laptop to  
train the juvenile starling, Bico, that the cat dragged in the other  
day.

ps. It is legal to keep starlings in the US. They are not native birds.
