Even more interesting, is that the first drafts of ST3, had the bad-guys being Romulans. The "Bird of Prey" was apparently commissioned originally as a Romulan ship, hence the "wings painted on the bottom". Later revisions had the ship still of Romulan origin, with Kruge (a rogue Klingon acting outside his authority) stealing the BoP from the Romulans.
onscreen though, it's quite canon that it's a Klingon ship.
