Origin of postnuptial
Examples from the Web for postnuptial
The first postnuptial molt of young birds and the corresponding molt of adults produce adult winter plumages.
At the next molt, the first postnuptial, the adult winter plumage is assumed by a complete molt from July to December.
A first postnuptial molt in July and early August, which is complete, produces the fully adult plumage.
At the first postnuptial molt the following summer, which is complete, the adult winter plumage is assumed.
The relations both prenuptial and postnuptial between the sexes are of the strictest kind.The Manbos of Mindano|John M. Garvan
