Hi Nathan,

Looks like a normal duck as we have them Holland also.
Afaik know this is the kind of bird you get when ordering wild duck in a 
The have very red meat and taste a bit like liver. Not too bad but quit 
distinct. Not so fat as the industrial raised duck.
The fillet is also  much smaller. for a family meal you need 2 or 3 of them.
Tastes great with forest mushrooms, truffle, berries, red wine etc.
As with all the game you should give the meat some time to get tender 
after you've shot them. Up to two weeks in a dry and cool place should 
do the trick. If you don't like to do this yourself just catch them and 
bring them to the local butcher, poulterer or chef.

Bon appetit,

Michiel Fokkema
