Webster’s Dictionary defines Immature as; not mature, not completely developed, not finished or perfect. It defines senior as; older, of higher rank or service. We like to think of ourselves as not finished and of higher rank! Many of us are projects still in the works, and we have been at it for a long time! We feel young at heart and thus consider ourselves Immature Seniors.

We see our little pheasant family almost every day now. It seems they have made our back yard and forest their home. The baby has grown and is almost as big as the female adult, his mom. The males has changed the most! Every one of his long slander tail feathers have gone. He appears to be in molt. Looking scruffy and forlorn. He no longer herds the female nor does the displays of the spring. It seems that parenthood had worn him out! We have changed his name from long tail to no tail. After doing some reading we have discovered that pheasants don’t like the heat. Its been hot as of late almost 40 Celsius. According to the book we read, it tells of how hot weather renders the males sterile. I suspect the loss of tail feathers and sedate behavior are symptoms of just that. We hope its temporary as we enjoyed the male’s antics and would like to see another chick or two next year. Though during the heat they have been up to plenty of amusing stuff, like standing under the sprinkler to get cool, or nosing their way under my Zucchini plants to find some shade!
