Barbara-
Great question and one I field regularly. I too submit data to 
feederwatch.  Although technically the two databases could easily 
work together in a large analysis, they do collect data in a 
different manner. Feederwatch data is the high count of each species 
at your feeder over a two day period. While eBird collects data at 
the most on a day long count. It does not allow for multiple day 
count, but rather would take the data as two separate checklists on 
two different days. I enter my feeder data in both databases and I 
would recommend that others do too. It only takes me a couple of 
minutes and that way we have all the Vermont data we can get in one database.

Thanks for eBirding Barbara.
