High resolution measurements of the specific heat of liquid He3 in the presence of a silver surface have been performed at temperatures near the superfluid transition in the pressure range of 1-29 bar. The surface contribution to the heat capacity is identified with Andreev bound states of He3 quasiparticles that have a range of half a coherence length.
