Other than:  The Atlas of Australian Birds; Bransbury; Thomas & Thomas; and
the usual field guides, I don't know of anything specific to Central
Australia.  However, when I was last there I bought a book entitled "A Field
Guide to Central Australia - a Natural History Companion for the Traveller"
by Penny van Oosterzee ($29.95 in Alice Springs) which is exactly what it
says it is - a lovely little (184 pages) natural history field companion.
You mind find as I did that it enriches your visit to Central Australia.
Another little snippet:  There was a small piece in the March 1996 Wingspan
(page 29) by Jane Bannister about her Alice Springs experiences on the 1995
Twitchathon (90 species in the day).
