This "rattlesnake grass" was found amongst other dry grasses to the side of a trail. The lobes towards the bottom had fallen off on most of the grass that was observed. The "rattle" was roughly 1 cm long.

Description from Wikipedia

Briza is a genus of annual and perennial grasses in the family Poaceae, native to northern temperate regions. The group is generally referred to as the quaking grasses because the flowers and seedheads shake on their stalks in the slightest breeze. Some of its members are grown as ornamental plants.
