One question though. What was your friend doing with his Christmas tree up at the end of January?

Thank you parapsyk. It isn't quite finished... but I still think its good.
If anybody else on ATS has encountered a sighting of a large, unknown beast of some sort, feel free to ask me to draw a "police-sketch-esque" thing and I'll be happy to do it.

We thought that it might be a reflection of his Christmas Tree or something so we went upstairs to check. All the lights in the house were off except for the glow off the TV downstairs. We went back downstairs and the eyes were still there. They seemed to bob up and down and kept getting bigger and bigger, almost as if whatever they were, they were getting closer. Eventually each eye seemed to be the size of a nickel. There looked like there was about three of the things, each with two eyes. The eyes would squint and peer threw the window as if they were watching us. It sounds like I was seeing things, but I wasnt: my friend and I saw the same exact thing. At points there was enough light that it looked like they had some kind of claws and pointed ears. It sounds crazy but it's true. Help, PLEASE
On Andros Island, Bahamas, is a legend of mischievous, small entities called Chickcharnies. The stories tell of little people that once inhabited the remote forests of the island, that were highly aggressive, and that could turn their heads all the way around. Chickcharnies are reported only from Andros Island and are said to have three fingers, three toes, and red eyes.
Now, there truly once existed on Andros Island -- the largest (104 x 40 miles) and least inhabited of the Bahamas islands -- a Chickcharnie of sorts. It was a 2-foot-tall owl called Tyto pollens, a remote cousin of the smaller Common Barn-owl (Tyto alba). Tyto pollens was a large, flightless owl known there from subfossils. It may be that it was territorially aggressive and coexisted with humans. The ability of owls to swivel their heads, and a territorial aggression, may have been the basis for this particular legend, but this is speculation.
It is said that to see a Chickcharnie brings lifelong good luck to the observer. I once spent 10 days on Andros Island and explored its seldom-visited old Caribbean pine forests in search of rare birds. But ... no Chickcharnies.
(Andros Island is a wonderful place that time and Club Med forgot ... and may they never find it. The few small hamlets are infused with much local color. Andros even has a "Loch Ness Monster" according to one travel brochure, that described it as a dragon-like sea monster called the Lusca. The Spaniards called the island "La Isla del Espiritu Santo," or the island of the Holy Spirit.)
