D800 White Balance. Yay or Nay

Am I the only one who thinks the D800 auto white balance sucks? I so often have to adjust it. Today I was at the park with my boy and took some shots of him at 6:30 pm with good lighting and he looks waaay too magenta. In fact it's dialed in at +64 magenta opened in Lightroom.

I have a Dell 3008WFP and color calibrated with a Spyder Pro. The auto white balance is set two clicks to the right (more amber) only.

Does anyone get auto white balance nailed most of the time by camera? Does Canon do a better job at it?
