A logistic population model with a maturation delay stage for adults is investigated. The adult population is related to its previous life stage with a maturation delay $r$, and has a non-linear exponential birth rate $be^{-pr}$ with a birth decay coefficient $p$. As $r$ increases, the unique positive equilibrium solution may experience two stability switchings, that is, from stable to unstable, and then back to stable again. The decay coefficient $p$ can also qualitatively influence the stability property of the system. Hopf bifurcation and the stability of the bifurcating periodic solution are analyzed by means of the center manifold theory and the normal form technique. By applying the integral averaging theory, phase-locked and phase-shifting solutions induced by the external excitation are also investigated and verified by numerical simulations.
