There were many, many of these in my maple tree. Most were attached to leaves and the leaves surrouning them were turning yellow or brown/dried. This particular one had a black, tubular casing dangling from it, which the others did not. Possibly unrelated, the same tree had a large tent filled with small black eggs.
