Lets say you are at the end of a runway doing some planes-potting and listening to tower ATC on our handheld transceiver.
You are a licensed aeronautical radio operator.
As an aircraft is cleared to land and is coming in on final, a flock of birds flies exactly across the flight-path and you can clearly see that there will be birdstrikes, could you, should you, would you, transmit a warning? Would such a call be illegal?
What about transmitting a warning to the tower about significant bird activity (if nothing has been mentioned on air) between aircraft landings?
If not, OK. I can certainly see the disruptive nature of the radio call.
