"Looking for a dreamboat? That's me!" Hop in and I'll whisk you away. I won't say much but I'll knock your green socks off anyway.
Willow is a blue western crowned pigeon native to Golden Island and later Bird Island as the artistic daydreamer who likes to make paintings, sing songs, and spend her time talking to the Critters of Golden Island.
Willow is very artistic and loves to daydream. Unfortunately, she has grand ideas but cannot always follow through. It aggravates her to see someone destroying her habitat. She is a free spirit but is the shyest of the group. She also feels safest when wearing a large, oversized hat, which she tends to hide under. She sometimes holds back her feelings aside from when pigs are around. She hates it when someone disturbs her when she has a creative art session. Willow appears to be the least daredevil-like of the group; as seen in one of her character sketches, she is dragging Stella by her tail, possibly to stop her from getting into a fight; and in the promotional art, she has a shocked look when she sees Luca leaning above the edge of the tree branch.
She has a few insecurities, such as having multiple colorful feathers on her head that she covers with her hat due to embarrassment. She is confident and friendly and stands up for what she believes in. She is loyal to even the newest friends, shown by her support for Artist Pig.
She is kind-hearted and not one who believes in controlling others, as the golden egg's manipulative powers do not affect her as it does to Dahlia.
Willow also likes to collect seashells.
Willow's Description From the Angry Birds Official Website:'
ARTISTIC DAYDREAMER - "Willow's a lover, not a hater and also the artist of the flock. She lives in her own 'Willow World' - as a daydreamer she often has grand ideas, but can't always follow through! It ruffles her feathers to see those pigs behaving badly and destroying their habitat."
HEAD IN THE CLOUDS - "Although Willow is a free spirit she's also the shyest of the group and feels safest when wearing a large, over-sized hat. While her shyness is an endearing quality, it sometimes holds her back from expressing her true feelings. However, when those piggies are around, she certainly comes out of her shell!"
Stella Super Interactive Annual Book Description
"GET YOUR CREATIVE ON!"
Willow's a dreamer, a lover not a hater and she's the artist of the flock. She lives in her own "Willow World" and dreams big! Willow likes big hats - and she can be a bit shy so they're great to hide beneath!
It ruffles her feathers to see those pigs behaving badly and destroying their natural habitat while they search for the Golden Egg. However, she has a pretty cool trick that she plays on them - she creates artistic images that can fool dumb pigs any day of the week!
Willow cares a lot about the environment, and she often talks with the strange critters that live on Golden Island to get a sense of what's happening there.
LOVES: Dreaming, Art.
FAVORITE MODES OF TRANSPORT: Her imagination!
FAB FACT: A WILLOW IS A TYPE OF TREE THAT HAS SOME HELPFUL MEDICAL PROPERTIES - IT'S EVEN USED TO MAKE ASPIRIN!
Angry Birds Stella
Willow's debut was in Angry Birds Stella as the "fourth" bird to be unlocked at her house. As with most levels, after you unlock her, you get the de facto photo in the scrapbook, and later throughout the game, you get her other "forms." Her power is similar to Hal's ability but is handled differently. When the screen is tapped and held down, Willow slows down and proceeds to spin. As the screen is held, Willow will rotate clockwise. Releasing the screen will cause her to shoot herself in the direction she is facing, drilling through objects before stopping. This is known as a Vortex Spin.
Her other forms include "Piano Willow," "Coffee Willow," "Sleepy Willow," and "Artistic Willow.". She regularly appears after her debut chapter.
Angry Birds POP!
Willow was one of the prominent characters in Angry Birds Stella POP! as she was mainly in the "Free the Critters" section where, whenever how many critters the level wants you to save, you pop all the bubbles to free the creatures. Simple as that. Later on when the game was remodeled to Angry Birds POP!, she was removed from the game, and Matilda took her place for the "Free the Critters" series of levels, which were later rebranded to "Free the Hatchlings". Despite this, she still regularly appears as a special guest appearance, usually on Fridays.

Powers and Abilities
- Vortex Spin: Arc in mid-air then spin through blocks
- Splash Pop: Transform bubbles into the next bubble color. This power is only shown in Angry Birds POP!
Stella is one of Willow's best friends. In Own The Sky, when Stella is traumatized over her flight experience and ruins Willow's painting, she does not get angry and instead is visibly concerned for her and creates a plan to help overcome her fear. Willow also comforts Stella along with the other characters after Stella sees who Gale really is in Bad Princess. She additionally appears in Stella's birthday party and urges Stella to dance with Gale.
Luca is seen to Willow as a younger brother, and she adores him. When they think that he is sleeping in The Runaway, Willow can't help but utter. When they find out that he is missing, Willow partakes in the search for him and is as worried as the rest of the flock. In the first episode of the series, Willow is also seen showing Luca her painting.
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.
Dahlia is one of Willow's best friends. They are often seen together and are always standing/sitting next to each other in multiple scenes of the Animation Series. They additionally go camping together.
Gale is one of Willow's former best friends. Their relationship isn't as explored, but Willow may not hold as much of a grudge against her as the other flock members due to her personality.
Gale knows Willow's insecurity and goes as far as to use it against her to have what she wants.
While their relationship is only explored in one episode, The Portrait, Willow and Artist Pig are very good friends. Willow is only helpful to him and only helps him improve on his skills. When Gale snaps his own brush in half, Willow gives Artist Pig her own and even ruins Gale's painting by painting a snout on it to get even with her. In Premonition, Willow is glad to see Artist Pig and teaches him how to befriend the Critters. She is seen going through enough trouble in pushing Artist Pig's body all the way to the treehouse after he was turned into a stone sculpture.
Willow speed-dated Bomb, listening to him talking about his unparalleled knowledge about dirt on the night the Great Egg War against the Pigs ended due to an emergency truce called by Leonard, their ruler. She then watched Bomb depart for Eagle Island on Leonard's submarine along with his friends, who were in a strike team commissioned to stop Zeta, a rogue eagle who had declared war on both the Birds and Pigs with her superweapon.
They like to enjoy time together just like the other birds of Red's Flock and commemorated Christmas together just like the others.
- Angry Birds
- Artist Pig
- Ethan "Mighty" Eagle
- Aside from being an artist, Willow may also be adept in playing the piano (scrapbook), and scriptwriting (pre-slingshot animation), and can also play the harp, as seen in the Stella Toons episode, Rock On!. This makes her the second bird known to play an instrument, the first being Hal. Her musical talent also includes singing, as demonstrated in The Angry Birds Movie.
- Willow's signature color is the only one not to represent the color of her feathers, but instead the color of her hat, possibly because the color blue is already used for Luca.
- Just like Hal acts as a boomerang, Willow acts as a vortex.
- In the episode, The Prankster, Willow seemed to have different colored feathers (which confirms that she's a Western Crowned Pigeon) on her head, when trying to dry Poppy's tears. This must have been what was under her hat all along.
- She has eight hats in total, five of them can be seen from the scrapbook in Angry Birds: Stella Slingshot. The other three, two were owned by herself, and one was made by Dahlia, in her diary.
- Willow, like many other characters in Angry Birds Stella, has a consistent soundtrack. It can be heard through The Portrait, Premonition, and Free The Hatchlings in Angry Birds POP!. She also has another version of her pop soundtrack here.
- Willow makes a cameo in the Angry Birds Movie. She is currently the second bird in her flock (excluding Stella) to make a confirmed appearance, the first bird is Gale, the third bird is Dahlia, and the fourth bird is Poppy.
- As British singer Charli XCX voices Willow in the film, she consequently has a British accent while singing the song "Explode".
- Willow was voted to be the most favorite character out of all of Stella's flock on Twitter.
- Willow is the second stella bird to be Friends with one of Red's Flock. The first is Luca who is Friends with Red or The Blues.
- Hera Syndulla, a bird from Angry Birds Star Wars II who almost has the same ability as her.
- Will, a purple Hatchling
- Li'l Pecker, a rapper and nephew to Major Pecker from Angry Birds Evolution
- Willie or Willy, two Hatchlings from Angry Birds Match
