Clear A: the participle phrase bringing ... 1975 modifies for the fact that 5 more eagles are counted in the total number of wild birds which were successfully raised and which are able to leave their nest now

(B): brings is not correct with the Plural subject 5 eagles
(C): it does not clearly modify for any Noun
(D): same error as C
(E): brought here wrongly means this action is parallel with the action left their nest of the 5 eagles. Besides, brought is an external Verb and it must be accompanied by a second Object, but here is no 2nd Object modifying for brought
(the structure is: brought + to + sth + sth)

The action of sea eagles "brought" the number to 34, not sea eagles themselves.
Therefore, A.

Other choices read as if sea eagles brought something.
