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?

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.
