Hi,
Use an omnibounce on your flash it will almost completly eliminate the red-eyes.

Greetings,
Frank

<eric does some quick research, never heard of the omni-bounc>
Ya, but wouldn't the loss off 2 1/2 stops make this effectively useless for longer shots? That owl was.... 40 feet away? Maybe more.

What does an omni-bounce actually do? I read some comments about it, but it wasn't clear to me what it did. One said that it evenly distributed the flash across the picture.

Yes, it was that high in a tree. I was standing on the ground. To improve the angle on the bird, I stood back aways. That helped a lot, but it meant I was rather far away. Bird photography is hard... one of the many reasons is because of your lack of control over the subject. You take what you can get.
