Sorry, I missed this question on VTBIRD I guess.
These are not part of eBird. If you want the records on eBird, you have to
enter them there in eBird style. If the programs are not totally compatible
you will have to keep track in eBird style while doing the other program.
This mostly applies to CBC data. We don't really like to have travel counts
more than say 5 miles long, and iif you kept CBC data all day for your
route, that would be way longer than 5miles. All of the databases are
compatible at some level and are in the Avian Knowledge Network , but since
CBC is on a huge circle and both GBBC and eBird are on finer detail in
regards to locality and often time, they are only just a bit compatible in
AKN of course for large analyses.
