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.
