A Jenkintown crossing guard is giving a whole new meaning to the “Go Birds!” slogan. Shauna Rivera is on crosswalk duty at West Avenue, but she wants to bring some feathery fun while also keeping the streets safe.  

Rivera’s husband gave her the Eagles mascot Swoop head.

This year she’s wearing it with her crossing guard uniform to get locals ready for the Super Bowl on Feb. 12.  

“People were literally stopping for selfies, taking pictures of me just to meet the Swoop head,” Rivera told CBS Philly. “So it’s been a fun thing to do just to get the energy going.” 

Rivera also wears the Swoop head to honor her late father, who passed away in 2018, the last time the Eagles played the Super Bowl.  

“My dad would have been ecstatic,” she said of her father, who shared her love for the Birds.
