Anyone know what these are? They are little cream coloured cones with what appear to be little black seeds inside.

These are Bird's Nest Fungi (probably a Cyathus sp.), in the Family Nidulariaceae. The 'eggs' in the 'nest' are actually spore-filled peridioles that can be splashed out of the 'nest' by raindrops.
