Character error 

When the wildlife official, Janice Rhodes, is talking to Daniel Barrett she says they will perform an autopsy on the birds. Though autopsy can refer to animals, it is arguably more normal for the word necropsy to be used.

Factual errors 

"A.C.E." is listed after cinematographer David Boyd's name in the opening credits. This stands for American Cinema Editors, of which he is not a member (he also isn't even a film editor). The correct letters to use would have been "A.S.C." for American Society of Cinematographers, of which he is a member.

Revealing mistakes 

While Lacy is on the phone after waking up from her blackout, and her boss calls her, while talking she looks at the phone to see the time, and the screen is what it should be when in a call on an iPhone. But then when the camera switches from her point of view to a third person perspective, she lifts the phone to her ear, and the charging battery icon can be seen briefly, along with the slider that shows on the lock screen, which wouldn't happen while on the phone.
