So according to canon the K'vort class is a Bird-of-Prey.
Even in "Yesterday's Enterprise" it was referred to as both: as Bird of Prey by Riker and as Battlecruiser by Picard and Wesley.
So "Bird of Prey" in this context is the term of a shape.
Since the show predates STO it makes no sense to apply STO terminology to it.
In addition since the Galaxy class was not particularly different, sans a few details, why should the K'vort suddenly be an entirely different kind of ship in this timeline?
