New records of the Great Inca-finch (Incaspiza pulchra) and the Masked Duck (Nomonyx dominicus) from 2011 and 2012 in the department of Lambayeque, Peru are presented and discussed. Several Masked Ducks were discovered in seasonal wetlands near the town of La Viña. Single individuals (possibly the same) of the inca-finch were found in both 2011 and 2012 on Cerro Chalpón, near the city of Motupe, and frequent handouts offered by pilgrims to a shrine on the hill. Both these records represent significant range expansions or previously unrecorded populations.
