At 1st guess, it's (he's?) attacking a reflection or other presumed invader. That's certainly known R. behavior, and isn't it that time of year?
I look forward to more expert response.

The behavior is then repeated 6-10 times exactly as before. Shortly afterward, the robin does the same thing at another specific window on the other side of the house. Any explanation?
