I think they are a kind of grass. As kids we would push them up our arms so that the pointy bits  kind of bumped around.

OK, I know it sounds funny but we were just kids playing.

No straw, however I do have some around. Checked between the two leaves, similar but different.

Why would you want to save the seeds?

Truth. Why? Weed seeds are a dime a dozen!

I just love the plant, regardless of what it is, I find extreme beauty in it. , no color or exotic shape such as flowers.
There are some much larger plants at the shore that resemble this

The seeds on these stalks may not be mature enough for drying and saving. They have to turn yellow for harvesting.

It is pretty! Resembles the sea oats at the shore, I agree! Not sure how viable the seeds are, though. Can you let any of it mature and save the seeds, Jimmy?

It looks like barley corn or a rye barley grass , are the tips of all the grains supporting a rough edged saw type needle point  ?
 IE.
As said it will go one way easily point first and be difficult to pull back through material .

  Barley seed is often found in bird seed mixtures & chicken feeds  ..have you been emptying the budgies cage  bottom in the area ?
