EbonyBird.com is the FanSided Network’s Baltimore Ravens blog. Started in November of 2007, the blog was originally written by Jarrett Carter, who left in December 2008 to focus his work on his outstanding HBCU Sports Blog, which is now a part of The HBCU Digest.

Joe Barnes took over as lead writer that December and has been ever since. During his time he has added two contributing writers (Casey Durkin and Tripp Colonell) and furthered Jarrett’s work on the blog. In September 2009, the blog was nominated for a Mobbie in the “Ravens” category, awards given to the best blogs in Maryland. Until the last day of voting, The Ebony Bird was in first place for the Ravens award.

In April 2010, the blog was one of the first in the FanSided Network to be redesigned with several new features and attractions. A revamped archive system, Twitter feeds on the front page of the site and a great new look are just several of the new features of the exciting redesign.

A year later in April 2011, Riley Babcock took over as editor of the Ebony Bird.

After a year and a half run with the site, Riley moved on and Tynan Patrick took over as Editor of the site.
