Hi Stuart

Can't tell from your msg where you are located but:

A Guide to the Birds of Wallacea by Coates and Bishop
was published by:
    Dove Publications Pty. Ltd.,
    P O Box 59
    Alderly, Queensland 4051

In the United States it is available from American Birding
Association and in Seattle, Washington from Flora and
Fauna Bookstore.

There is also a web site for Indonesia

It seems to me that there are others also but I can't locate
them at the moment.  I would also think that contact
with the Oriental Bird Club would be of interest to them
and of much value to you.

Good Luck and keep me informed.  I would love to visit that
area.  we did spend 3 months between Indonesia and
Thailand  ---  pretty fantastic.  Never got Timor, though.
