Yes, it was probably me. I'm the original prankster of the flock. I won't let you get off easily, especially if you're green, round, and like to snort.

Her power is aimed and functions similarly to Matilda's egg bombs, however Poppy sends herself "drilling" through blocks and obstacles placed directly below her as opposed to relying on another object that she drops to do the work. The ability has it's ups and downs when comparing it to Matilda's eggs: Since Poppy sends herself down, she does not create a Corpse that can be flung upwards when the ability is activated allowing for additional damage, and when she does initially land on the structure, she does not detonate, sending objects around her in opposite angles. Poppy's drill technique however can allow her to plow deeper into a structure than what a single Egg Bomb can before Poppy herself becomes a Corpse. She is the strongest bird out of physical strength. This is known as Tornado Dive.
She enjoys to laugh, as in promotional art for Angry Birds Stella, and in the character sketches, she was seen laughing with Stella. She can sometimes get outraged or prideful, as shown in her character sketches. She loves fun, being adventurous, and being creative, just as the rest of her friends and likes the rhythm of her drums.
Poppy loves to prank others but usually doesn't know the limits. She always is often one step, as seen when the other birds attempt to prank her in The Prankster.
Poppy loves to show off, as she misleads Willow and Dahlia into thinking that she defeated a monster all by herself, however she is often bitten back as she ends up being the scared one in the end.
Poppy often gets carried away in the things she does, whether it be pranking or playing the drums.
However she is still a good friend in the end and is comforting to be around, as she attempts to cheer Stella up after she is crushed by Gale's new persona.
Poppy's Description From the Angry Birds Website :
"Poppy's wild, mischievous and crazy as a coconut! She lives life in the fast lane and is the group's comedian - she loves playing pranks to make the other birds laugh. She's definitely an attention seeker and the group sometimes loses their patience with her if she takes her practical jokes too far (like the time she dressed Dahlia up as a pig when she was sleeping). Poppy doesn't really like being alone and always wants someone around to talk to because she really likes the sound of her own voice! As the musician of the flock, she's a highly skilled percussionist and her trademark is banging away on any object with her drumsticks to create bangin' beats."

Main Article: The Angry Birds Movie
In The Angry Birds Movie, Poppy is introduced as an employee at the Birds of a Feather Salon, located at one part of Bird Village's main street. She is shocked to see a passing Red, who was walking the street on his way to the Infinity Acceptance Center, somehow get a lot of feathers all over him from the salon.
Poppy then performs with Stella and her friends during a welcome celebration for the pigs when they first arrive at Bird Island, before sitting down with other birds to watch the pigs' performances. Nights later, she, along with Dahlia and Willow, partake in a huge dance party with the other birds, to the tune of Aoki's "Fight", as the pigs ravage the village, stealing their eggs and sailing back to their homeland.
The next morning, most of Stella's friends gather with the other birds at the beach which the pigs left from to reflect on the aftermath of the pigs' sinister deed and discuss what course of action to take against them, with Poppy among various birds themselves asking Red what could be done. After Red decides to launch an assault on Pig City to reclaim the eggs, which succeeds, the birds eventually return to their native island to repair the damage to their village.
In the midst of the rebuilding efforts, Poppy and her friends spontaneously decided to stop and give the Hug Trader a huge group hug, before all of them fell over comically.
Stella is one of Poppy's best friends, quite possibly one of her closest. Poppy attempts in cheering Stella up, showing that she cares for Stella's feelings.
Poppy is one of Stella's best friends. While they fight often they clearly care for each other. Stella loves to jam with Poppy and her other friends, but she gets annoyed when Poppy gets a little too carried away while playing the drums. Poppy and Stella are seen laughing with each other in promo pictures for the game, showing their enjoyment of each other's company.
Luca is a younger-brother figure to Poppy. Luca helps Poppy put back the wrecked instruments after getting carried away, showing that he looks out for her.
Poppy cares for Luca and is seen, along with the other members of the flock, looking for him after realizing that he is missing.
Willow and Poppy are best friends. While Willow is sick of Poppy's constant pranks and tricks, she is still friends with her and goes camping with her and Dahlia. They enjoy playing in the band together, but Willow dislikes when Poppy gets too carried away with her music playing.
Poppy is one of Dahlia's best friends. While she gets irritated by Poppy's constant jokes and pranks, they are still good friends and Dahlia attempts to cheer Poppy up by making an entirely new drum set for her.
While Poppy seems to hold a grudge against Gale for turning against the Stella flock, when she comes back, like the rest of the flock they take her in. While they are reluctant to open up to her once again, they soon do and have an instrument session, until Gale yet again turns her back to Poppy and the rest of the flock, once again separating their relationships and like the rest of the flock, Poppy is shocked.
