He should be ok for one night. make sure he has more than one water dish if he has any habit of knocking his over. you could also put a radio on a timer if you are worried about him being lonely.

We have to leave our birdies home. one's a Quaker parrot and he's not allowed in pennsylvania ( or jersey)

You'll need to keep your IRN out of Jersey too, unless they've changed the law. I hear mutterings of it changing, but no confirmation yet.

Apparently, New Jersey is concerned feral Ringnecks will take over their legislative body and start enacting more sensible laws.

Actually, I believe it is because they are concerned the Ringneck will naturalize (as they have done) and make themselves a nuisance to local biology and agriculture. This is the only state I'm aware of with anti-Ringneck laws, but Quaker (aka Monk) Parakeets are illegal or regulated in a number of other states for the same reasons.

Fair enough makes sense,,, There was a few feral colonies starting to move in over here in western Australia years ago i think..but they were eradicated..
