    My thinking is if you can isolate the red and tone it down a bit......and bring out the bird a bit more in detail.

    the bird needs more exposure not many ways to do that at this point. My opinion

    How about a curves adjustment in photoshop on the bird?

    I agree that toning down the red is a good idea. It draws away from the subject too much.

    You can also just isolate the bird and do a gamma as in burn in would in a darkroom. My meaning was nothing but post processing now. If you shoot something like it again a little flash would cure the problem. Might burn up the red though. A little flash at shooting always looks better to me than post processing. Just my opinion.
