Q:

Is Wawa a bird?

A:

"Wawa" is a term meaning "wild goose" in the Native American Ojibway language. The town of Wawa, Ontario in Canada even takes its name after the bird, with a giant goose monument at its entrance welcoming visitors.

The Canada goose is one of the best-known species in North America and is found in each of the continental United States and Canadian provinces at some point during the year. The geese thrive in a variety of suburban and rural areas rich in berries, grains and grasses and are commonly seen near bodies of water. The migratory bird typically heads to the southern U.S. and Mexico during winter months.
