How do I fix these??

So no one is coming out cause of COVID and I need to do this. I already have the paint for the areas (3 windows like this).

My plan is to clean the surface after scraping with a putty knife to remove chipping/old paint...I'll be cleaning with water + soap.....each window (theres 3). Then I need to "fill in" the missing wood...this is where I hit a stump. The thing that worries me is the wood at the bottom pulling away...I bought a wood filler tub thats paintable..but the crack seems rather narrow...I don't think Zip Loc will work to get wood filler in the gap. What to do what to do? I do have to paint the whole square area around the window....I was thinking of exterior caulk...or even normal caulk...but then again it paintable? What if it shrinks??? etc.

I noticed that in the pics you posted yesterday. Looks like plywood to me. Hopefully it's not.
I still think it's plywood. Do you have any closeup pics of the part that is seperating?

You gotta pry all the lifting junk off. Then seal, prime, caulk, paint. And add checking on these to your yearly maintenance list.
