Take a video of a 3-5m interval done at your lactate threshold power or HR with views from the back, top and both sides. Only way to tell. Seat looks too far back for sure, height would be fine if you moved it forward. Cleats look a bit far forward as well.
You actually nailed a coupe of things I fixed a while back when I was riding this frame. Good eye!
I might take several videos as you suggested KWalker on my new frame to see what you guys think.

around ftp effort
I've lowered the seat height a bit (suggestion from a riding buddy) and my quads have been burning more than before on similar efforts, I think I may have gone down a bit too much. However, I do think I had it a smidge too high before. But I don't think power is down overall. Comments welcome, I realize it's probably hard to get an overall picture with my shoulders/head missing though..
Wow on the squirrel.. I have never seen one take down a rider before
The Stem length and height, is a question of how aggressive you want your position, and what you body allow and like. I bought some cheap stems in different length, to try different positions for a couple of weeks, and then settled on the position I liked the most. Basically the most aggressive position, I could ride all day.

VV I'm quite good already, this happened at the end of May. Still working on some right trapezius weakness though. Got some titanium upgrades (in the body that is!). VV
I've had one of them run thru my wheels (under my BB) but thankfully, none IN my wheels.
WRT to saddle height... I think you're close. Your pedal stroke improved around 2:30 as you scooted forward to dig a little. You could probably afford to lower your saddle 3-5mm until you feel that consistency through the bottom of the stroke in most of your positions.
Just go to a proper fitter.
