we don't use and brought here because it would sound as if the eagles brought the number 34....

Thank you for your explanaiton.

I still have question though.

what is the subject of "brining" ? To me, it sounds like the fledging sea gulls. If so, your explanation is not quite perfect because ",and brough" has as you explained the same subject with "brining".

I think there must be a slight difference in the meaning of "bringing" and "and brought".

Thank you anyway.

I am picking ^ A ^ here.

I think the subject with "bringing" is the action of leaving their nests..

bringing to #~ is idiomatic indicating a cumulative sum. (nobody or no seagull physically brought anything)
