During a trip to the Great Victoria Desert via the centre in July we saw a number of pied butcherbirds with bright and extensive white backs as you describe. This variation had us rechecking the bird to verify our identification.

G'day all, Has anyone noticed that the Pied Butcherbirds around the Alice and Ayers Rock have much more extensive white on the back than they do further south? An inland form of the Pied Butcherbird?
