Original Message Bird's Nest Fungus
I have found a lot of this in my garden recently. From what I have found (online and from the nursery), it is not bad for the garden but is rather invasive. The seeds are released once the "nests" open up and rain falls on them, splashing the seeds (spore pods actually) out of the "nests".

So you should be able to get rid of them eventually, or at least control them, by digging them up before they open.
