Now that the straw-poll's open I'll put in a vote for Male Goshawk, mainly because it looks too solid and big headed to my eye and Sparrowhawks usually show a squarish tail even when folded. Outer tail feathers have a narrower outer vein so on a folded tail the tips of the outers shoud be visible and not completely covered by T1 iff they are of equal length as in the case with sparrowhawk. Goshawks look rounded because its centrals are longer and overhang.
