Hi Barbara-

They all go into the same database but are assigned different project 
codes. FeederWatch has a different protocol (record highest number of 
birds at one time versus total number seen for eBird) so you have to 
enter that differently into eBird. It doesn't hurt a thing if the 
records are under both databases. I like to have all my own records into 
eBird so I see my birding life there so I always enter them in both.

All of this, and more,  is part of the Avian Knowledge Network (AKN). 
You can learn more about it at
