    Model Christie Brinkley arrives at the "50 Years of Beautiful" television event celebrating the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue's 50th Anniversary at the Dolby Theatre on Jan. 14, 2014 in Los Angeles.

    Supermodel Christie Brinkley made an unscheduled trip to Miami from the Turks and Caicos Islands for medical treatment after a run-in with a bird.

    Brinkley posted images on her Instagram account Monday, showing her swollen eye and stitches.

    "We interrupt this holiday to take a little unplanned excursion to Miami for cat scans and stitches following an accident trying to save a bird," she wrote.

    In the post Brinkley also thanked "our wonderful Parrot Cay Family who got me to the boat and plane."

    She went on to thank her "friends in Miami who found my A Team at University of Miami Hospital led by Dr. Askari and his professional caring and adorable team."

    In one of the photos, Brinkley is holding an ice pack to her face. Another image shows a woman in a white lab coat giving a thumbs up behind Brinkley as she lay in a hospital bed.
