Fall onto the Caged Island
From the Super Mario Wiki
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
The Power Star is located on one of the floating isles near the tower, which has a large cage on it. In Super Mario 64, the whole island has a large, steel fence surrounding the perimeter, and in Super Mario 64 DS, the island has a small, wooden fence surrounding it while the Power Star is contained inside a steel cage with only a small doorway for an opening. As the mission's name implies, the player is intended to enter the island from above, which can be accomplished by using Hoot. Hoot is located inside the tree next to where the player enters the level. Once he leaves the tree, Hoot starts complaining about how he should be sleeping during the day, but then offers to give the player a flight. After the player grabs onto Hoot, they must time their descent properly so that they land on the island and then grab the Power Star.
