eBird or Birdata

I'm interested in opinions regarding the scientific usefulness of standardised surveys (2ha/20min) submitted to either eBird or Birdata. I understand data entered under a specific format into eBird will be incorporated within Birdata at quarterly intervals, but I don't believe there is any data flow in the other direction. I use Birdata to conduct monthly standardised surveys around our property on Fraser Island, however the local QLD Parks and Wildlife Service have suggested eBird data is more useful and easier to access compared with Birdata. From a purely scientific point of view, where's the best place to upload the data?
Cheers,
Jack
