Yes, multiple birds die throughout the movie however they show a fake looking dead bird at 45:00 and more at 1:00:00, no blood or gore just a stuffed looking seagull.
There are also other scenes of characters showing or holding fake dead birds with no blood or gore.

Yes, but not modern jumpscares. There are some scenes where the birds attack that the audio is loud but they show what is about to happen before the loud audio of bird noises starts.

Plenty of panicking characters throughout the movie, but not a traditional anxiety attack.

Yes if you define being trapped in cars, homes, and buildings as claustrophobic. There are many scenes throughout the movie where characters are trapped hiding somewhere from the birds.

No more than the usual stuff for the time period it was made in. Some underhanded comments towards the women but no outright objectification.
