BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Georgia wildlife officials are asking beachgoers to be careful around bird nesting areas along the Georgia coast.

Department of Natural Resources officials say certain birds build nests on Georgia beaches and disturbance from humans and pets can pose significant threats.

Wildlife officials are asking beach visitors to walk below the high-tide line, watch birds from a distance and to back away from birds they accidentally disturb.

Officials also say dog owners who let their pets chase shorebirds may be fined for harassing a federally protected species in some areas.
