Welcome, rejackson! Welcome! I'm new to this world, too, but they sure look like seeds of something. Does something grow above it that could have dropped them?

Hi rejaxson! Welcome! Looks like birds nest fungus!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

Rejaxson; Welcome!
Cannon or artillery fungus ( seems to me ), if next to ANYTHING you like the looks of, then you should put some boxes or big bottles around it. That.......stuff?....shoots out at a surprisingly strong force and the 'seeds' stick better than glue. Nasty, nasty, NASTY.

I would throw down a fungicide.

I believe that is most likely Birds Nest fungus not artillery fungus.
