A young sea eagle, sometimes called a white-tailed eagle, needs a lift from Stykkishólmur on Snæfellsnes to Reykjavik to have his wounds attended to. 

The magnificent bird was caught in Snæfellsnes, in the Berserkjahraun lava field yesterday after tourists reported that he was experiencing difficulty in flying. 

The eagle is a young specimen, hatched last spring. He's now relaxing in a dog cage at the West Iceland Institute of Nature but needs a lift to Reykjavik to see a vet and hopefully reach full health again. 

Anyone willing and able to transfer the bird to Reykjavik can contact the institute HERE.
