I am going after SPList.fields and getting the collection of fields... I would like to eventually return only the fields that are managed meta data. Any ideas on how I can do this?

When looping through the fields you will look for ones that are TaxonomyFields

if( fld is TaxonomyField ){
    //code here for metadata fields
