Would you, American people, please give the full phrase when asked for this?

I agree with removing this phrase, but for non-English speakers, I thought it might be worth mentioning that the term "bird" also has an English slang meaning: a woman (although it's generally rather patronizing).

That might have been (unknowingly) part of the reason for choosing the phrase initially... ;)

How about we use, "D-W Corner" or "D-W Time", to indicate the informal nature of the gathering?

(I'm not sure those two together are worth 2c, but they're suggestions.)
