A red-backed shrike?

This year I saw a few new (to me) kinds of birds, and one of them is this lovely red-backed shrike. I am not completely sure that the bird on the photo is a red-backed shrike, though, but judging by the picture it seems like it. What I really like about this bird is that it is about the size of a sparrow, but it has a very serious face and a beak that reminds me of birds of prey.
