Hi All,
I'm heading off with my partner on a brief not-entirely-birding holidayin few weeks, starting out at Uluru for a few nigths, then heading up to Kings Canyon for a night and then on to Alice Springs. We are planning at least a one day drive out through the West MacDonnells, and i was also thinking possibly Trephina Gorge too. We will be hiring a vehicle, and it will only be a 2wd. Any thoughts on where to see the following would be appreciated:

Little Buttonquail
Diamond Dove
Spinifex Pigeon
Black-breasted Kite
Spotted Nightjar
Chiming Wedgebill
Ground Cuckoo-shrike
Rufous-crowned emu-wren
Dusky Grasswren
Striated Grasswren - gather this is a near impossibility
Red-browed Pardalote
Slaty-backed Thornbill
Banded Whiteface
Grey-fronted Honeyeater
Grey-headed Honeyeater
Golden-backed honeyeater
Western Bowerbird
Painted Finch

I realise that some will hopefully be common and widespread, whereas others will be downright near impossible, or just plain lucky, but any help appreciated. thanks in advance.
