It really isn't that implausible at all that term "warbird" originated with the Klingons. In TOS, the Klingons and the Romulans apparently entered into an alliance against the Federation (Romulans were using the D7 design and it seems Klingons gained cloaking technology). It really wouldn't be that hard of a stretch that the Romulans started referring to their bird-shaped ships as warbirds too and the name stuck.
I just remember Lt Stiles going on about knowing it was Romulan because they had a bird of prey painted on them. Call me confused when we started seeing more Klingon Birds of Prey then just about any other class of ship
