Yeah..the "canebrake" comes from a plant (Rivercane - Arundinaria gigantea) that this species is often associated with in the southeast. This plant grows in dense clumps known as canebrakes and hides lots of rattlesnakes. :)

Wow! Great spotting. You mispelled "canebrake" but nailed the ID other than that!
