Continuity 

The amount of clapping changes with each new camera shot in the board room scene.
After the people are rescued from the bus and are sprayed with the yellow liquid, they lay down and die in the face down position. In the still shots just after, two of them are face up.
The man who robs Rod of gasoline is walking backwards when he is attacked by a bird which slashes his neck. As he is still walking and before he falls down, his face is OK. In the next shot he has a wound on his face as well as his neck.

When the Cowboy pulls a gun on Rod and demands that Rod sell him some gas, he draws the gun and holds it straight out with both hands. In the next shot when the Cowboy voices the demand, he's holding the gun straight out using only his right hand.

After the basketball game, where Rod and Rick are standing and talking, Rick is seen in the wide shot holding the basketball behind his head. When the camera switches to the first closeup of him, he's holding the ball in front of him and moves it behind his head.

Factual errors 

Rod mentions that his Ford Mustang is a hybrid car. There are no hybrid Mustangs.
Eagles and vultures are not native to the state of California.

Miscellaneous 

Some of the birds fly without moving their wings, even when other birds in the same shot need to flap their wings to stay in the air.

Plot holes 

The clerk at the convenience store tells Rod that he can't use the telephone because the lines are down, yet he runs Rod's credit card through a credit card machine, which uses telephone lines to process transactions.
Some of the dive-bombing birds explode upon impact, others do not, mostly when they land near the main characters.

Revealing mistakes 

In a number of shots, the badly inserted CGI birds disappear before the shot ends, and in at least one occasion, they drastically change position just before the shot cuts.
