I second (or third) the idea that shooting with red light at night is problematic, so I've arrived at a compromise that I believe works more often than not.
I use red filters on my video lights, keeping them on low power while I am looking for critters. This seems to spook them less than the white lights.
I have previously white balanced with my lights on medium power (or whatever power I intend to use) without the filters.
When I find a subject, I remove or rotate the filters out of the way and do the shooting.
Whether this really helps, or just makes my life more complicated I couldn't say - I do think it helps sometimes.
